    Josh Manuel

    Josh Manuel is one solid, technical, drummer. Getting his start on YouTube, Josh broke onto the scene by covering his favourite songs and bands, earning him the attention of both fans and fellow musicians. This all led to his gig with Issues where he is both a songwriter and live/recording drummer.

    Most of what I'm playing on drums isn't nearly as difficult as it sounds. By using Singles and Doubles creatively you can play some pretty technical sounding stuff.
